Sketchbook update: nature edition

I've found a few scans that I never published here, so I'm doing that today.

Stone arch - ink and watercolor sketch

This is a stone arch by the coffee shop in Kostrena, where I often go for a walk. Brush pen and watercolor sketch.
I cropped the right page because it's mostly empty.

Krk bridge - watercolor sketch

This is the bridge that connects my home island Krk with the land, viewed from the Kostrena beach.

Trees and grass near the beach - watercolor sketch

The last one was from a few days ago when I spent a couple of days hanging out on the beach in my hometown. I also have an instagram shot of the page spread where my boyfriend sketched some geometric patterns on the other page:

Sketches from the vacation

Here are a few selected sketches from my recent vacation in my hometown.

Pencil and watercolor in a small Moleskine watercolor notebook.

Palm tree ink and watercolor sketch

Brush pen and watercolor in a Canson sketchbook. The shadow is pretty terrible, I know.

Tomorrow, I'll post some fantasy sketches, yay!

Sketching in the natural history museum

This is a stripped-down repost from my official blog. I have a few more days worth of sketches to post, which I'll do in the following few days.

Anyway, I was sketching taxidermied animals from life in the natural history museum.

Cricket noises everywhere

This place hasn't been updated in a while... I had dedicated the majority of my free time to client projects (this is now changing). I still sketch every single day, but most of it is not very good.
Here are some sketches I did recently. Top left is view from my window in Pilot Parallel pen which doesn't have waterproof ink. Bottom left is again, view from my window, this time in waterproof brush pen. On the right are some things that caught my attention.

Brush pen & watercolor sketches

This following sketch is something I completely about. I couldn't decide whether to draw a boy or a girl so I drew something that was not obviously either. Ang he/she has a huge nose.

Pencil portrait

I have some new sketches on the way. If you'd like to be updated more regularly, you can follow me on instagram :)

Dead sparrow

Yesterday our family cat brought a bird, and after he let it lying there I went to sketch it before burying it. It's not everyday that I get to draw a bird from up close.
